    Im curious as to what was the recall for the glovebox.....unfortunately not all dealers know how to road balance a tire....do they have the hunter machine to do it..or did they simply state they did it..and placed it on a normal balancer....just curious.....damage to the interior is unacceptable.....time to go above the service managers head..to the owner of the dealership

    Need copy or duplicate of original window sticker for 2010 Cadillac CTS. Bought used from Indiana dealer but car was sold new by an unknown dealer in Florida, I believe.

    I believe you can get a copy through any dealer if you provide the VIN number....the dealer has to request it from big GM...so curious.....do you have this car now?

    Have you taken it to the dealership? If so, what did they say? Your car is still under warranty - with a problem like that, I'd want it fixed asap!

    I've had this car close to a year now and don't notice the problem anymore. Could be the steering loosened up slightly so not as tight, tires have worn, or I'm just used to it now, not sure. I took it to the dealership early on and they could not detect the issue.

    Yes. Twice. The first time the mechanic said he felt the same thing, he put it on the rack, and checked for anything loose, and gave it back to me the same way. I complained to Cadillac, and they sent me back. They said it was normal. I did drive another car that did the same thing, but its not normal for a car to do this . There is something wrong with it right out of the factory. Very dangerous.

    I was hoping it would go away. A friend of mine suggested it might be the wide tires ,but I don't know. There not that wide 235s. I once had a 93 dodge stealth with 245s, awd, and 4 wheel steering, and it was rock solid, it did sway I little over 100 mph, but that was the rear steering, and me touching the wheel, not the car doing it on its on . I really love this car. I'd love it more if it drove straight.

    has it been checked for proper alignment....you previously mentioned the mechanic put it on the rack and checked for loose suspension...but nothing about checking alignment...09 CTS here with no problems at all...37K

    Yes he did. Sorry, that's what I meant, the alignment rack.
  • All:

    I have had my 08 CTS since March 2014. It was a one owner with 30,000, so I got a great deal on it. The car drove wonderfully until I had to replace the tires last week. The car now has 40,000 miles on it and the tread on the previous tires was in the neighborhood of 3/32. I first put on Cooper RS3-A tires, a consumer digest best buy pick. As soon as I got in the car and left the tire place, a vibration started to occurr in the steering wheel at 60mph and higher. It would go in and out of intensity. I took the car back in and they rebalanced the tires and checked the alignment. Still doing it. So, we put on Cooper Ultra Touring CS-5 tires next and to my surpise, it was still doing it. Finally ,we decided that the original tire needed to go on the car (Michelin Pilot HX MXM4) and that should solve the problem because of how tight the suspension is. Guess what, still doing it. This is crazy! I have read the forum on this issue. Any suggestions other than going to a dealership or letting GM customer service know?

    Thank you,

    Jeff
  • I forgot to include that my tires are 235/50/18. Thank you.
